Two compositions in my Solo Show: Nature Abstracted sold at the reception within the first half an hour. I was so pleased by getting the youtube videos online; as well as being exhausted from promoting the show this great news slipped my mind 🙂

My Solo Show will be installed tomorrow. One day left to tie up the lose ends of edges and second coats on a couple of paintings; as well as a few hooks and wires and I’m set. I refuse to panic, by telling myself ‘it will get done’. Thank goodness the details of the statement, labels and prints are completed! 🙂

Chose are familiar objects stripped of their function, these ‘symbols’ create a lexicon of personal iconography, intentionally vague in meaning.

A few of my paintings for the solo show just photographed as I had started the transfer from computer to canvas.

Less then two weeks until the show and they still need to be finished. I really need to do nothing but paint now. What could be better?
